JEKYLL ISLAND, GA (WTOC) -

A rehabilitated sea turtle will soon leave the Georgia Sea Turtle Center on Jekyll Island and find a new home in Pittsburgh.

Sunburst was permanently injured following a boat strike in 2010, but has reached a successful point in her recovery.

Weather has delayed her departure by one week but she will be transported to the Pittsburgh Zoo to help educate the public about marine life on Monday.
